Arnold Palmer.

While I never got to meet him personally, I have a handful of friends over the years who did. Apparently he was warm, gracious and would sign almost anything when asked.

Earl was a differnt Player back then. I saw him in Person at the Continental inn in Lexington ky in a big 9 bal tourny and he was very nice and signed a cue for me. I also met Jenette lee and Nick Varner . It was a great tournament and a lot of Cue dealers there. Earl seemed to at some point stop taking his meds maybe and his bi polar got the best of him. A good Friend of mine who knows Earl said that Earl had a deal with a pool hall in Nyc I believe and they told him he could live above it for free all he to do was give a lesson every day for 1hr and they charged for them . I believe he got free food , free room and board , free pool just for giving the 1 hr lesson. Earl comes down one morning and say's I don't feel like doing that today . So that ended his stay at the pool room . Do not know were he ended up. He burned thru all of his money . Sad

Yes, perhaps because he stopped competing about 80 years ago. If you're old enough that you remember him well, I'd love to hear some Lou Gehrig stories.
